Comments:
---- So here I am again after a long absence from Newgrounds. I've decided to return with a bang and as a result, I'm uploading a song which I believe is honestly one of my best tracks, and also the one which I worked hardest and longest on.

This track will serve 2 purposes, It will first and foremost serve as my submission to the Orchestral MAC 2012, hosted by BrokenDeck. It's a pretty large competition with some of the greatest names on Newgrounds regards Orchestral music (such as PeterSatera, Bosa, Supersteph54, samulis, etc), so I doubt I'll make it that far, but I can honestly say I gave it my all.

The song's second purpose will be as the Title track of my new album (Eye of the Dragon) which I will be uploading on my Bandcamp Account (erikscerri.bandcamp.com)
. I am uploading this Title track on Newgrounds as a preview of this album, which will be available soon.

Regards the song's production, this track is a result of 41 hours, 38 minutes of work. It is also my longest track to date, and definitely my most detailed. I spent a lot of time humanizing, desyncing, harmonizing and EQing to attain as much perfection as I could. I know quality isn't such a high factor in this MAC, but I still tried to give as much realism as I could.

Regards instruments and orchestration, I used: violins, violas, cellos, double basses, flutes, oboes, clarinets, bassoons, french horns, trumpets, trombones, tubas, harp, piano, alto singers, bass singers, tenor singers, 2 solo singers, a range of percussions (cymbals, timpanis, godzilla hits, djembe, etc), koto, accoustic guitar, xiao, dizi, electric bass, clean electric guitar, glockenspiel and probably some others which I'm forgetting.

As for credits, I can't list all the people who helped me with this here, because I'd never finish, but I'd primarily like to thank Supersteph54 for giving me a shit-tonne of criticism and tips and Logical-Defiance for his help.

So that's it I guess. 267 Patterns, 128 Automations, 67 Play Instances, 164 Bars and 41 hours of work spread over 2 months. I sure hope you enjoy listening to this as much as I enjoyed making it. Feedback is very much appreciated!

Enjoy!!!

think of the song like this a small town with farmers in like china and the begining is happy and all is well and when the drums set is a dark cloud have come to their town. in this case a dragon. and when it picks up again think of a hero rising and battling the dragon. and when it calms down again think of the hero standing by the dead dragon. and the towns people chering his name and all is beetter in the town once again.

thats what i thought of when i heard this song it amazing and is one of the best ive heard in a while.

this is beautiful work
just the whole song i picture the scene moving with the song across the landscape and in the end stopping by a pool where little drops fall and then it fades into the sky

over all great and just astounding, i LITERALLY can see the scene in my mind and it's beautiful

this song is just beautiful and that is actually all i can say

Wow, so many emotions.

- Birth of the Morning - Journeys Beginning.
- A Chaos creeps upon us.
- Through our travels we will Learn - Wisdom's Road.
- Journey's end - when we part ways.

That's how I put the music's sections it into words. M I RYT?
